2014 MV Agusta Recalls Brutale, F3 and Rivale Motorcycles

MV Agusta has recalled 223 of its following 2014 motorcycles due to possible failure of the swingarm securing bolt: Brutale 675, Brutale 800 Dragster, Brutale RR, F3 675, F3 800 and Rivale 800.

The effected motorcycles were built between Dec. 18, 2013, and March 10, 2014.

MV Agusta says the threaded bolt that is used to secure the swingarm pin may fail. IF this occurs, the swingarm may loosen, increasing the risk of a crash.

MV Agusta has notified owners and dealers will install a new threaded bolt, free of charge. The recall began on April 25, 2014. Owners may contact MV Agusta at 1-215-781-1770, and reference recall number 2798.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
